This is OK, but it would be more usual to say:That is absolutely the best way to do it.
than to use the word order you've suggested. I did a Google battle
and got : absolutely the best
- 4,520,000 examples the absolutely best
- 1,650,000 examples absolute
But the absolute best
brought up 13,300,000 examples. So in wins out over both the others. To me it sounds very informal and emphatic however. So I'd suggest ...
in neutral style - absolutely the best
more informally - the absolute best
